October 2012 105

The evacuations began this afternoon and the closings list has grown lengthy as the day has gone on.
My school, as with most schools on the coast, announced their closure early in the day. This was a huge relief since we have many rivers and streams near our home that quickly flood and make it nearly impossible to get to our subdivision. This was the case in the last hurricane and I almost had to stay over at a friend's simply because our district didn't make a safe call early enough.

At this time, our town and all neighboring towns have shut down in preparation for the storm. There is a strong sense of being in a ghost town. Only essential personal will be required to report Monday morning. I give the decision makers a lot of credit for making these calls, they are not taking any chances when it comes to people's safety. Thank you, it is greatly appreciated!

I am extremely thankful that my husband is home and not on travel which has been the case with serious storms in the past.

How the tables have turned, my son is calling and checking up on us to make sure we're safe in the impending storm :)
So sweet, Nicholas!

Keeping all those affected by hurricane Sandy in my prayers!
